Mike's first collected trees this year

Post  chris on Fri Feb 01, 2013 11:04 am

Mike took the day off work today to go collecting for the first time this season, he had had his eye on this one since last year and had cut it back to start the ramification process . This has paid off and with the natural dead wood on this tree it won't be long before its a fine Bonsai
He spent the afternoon with me potting up his booty!!!!!







He could not resist its little brother as well

Nice finds! The little brother is a cutie; it still has time to be wired with curves in the trunk/branches, and the roots planted over a nice rock.

Nice going guys.
When does collecting season finish?
Will I get the chance to come collecting when I'm a full member again?

Hi Chris,
You didn't state what species but they look like Larch, are they native to wales? or imported?
I would think Mike is hoping for some more back budding?
Cheers Graham

Hi Todd and thanks for the reply.

Hi Graham, these have just been collected fro a disused forestry site in Wales, it is now that Bonsai starts, back budding will along with root structure be developed over the next few seasons

Hi Daf, see you Sunday about collecting

Mike was out again today











Mike had cut these back in the ground last year and its paid off with some great structure
